Hi everyone! I'm Jen, and I live in Glen Allen... Been off and on on Sparkpeople for years, but just got some disturbing news from the doctor, and I'm not going down without a fight. I work out at the Patrick Henry Y

Hi, I just joined this morning. You can see where I live from my username. We've lived here two years now. Wow, it's so encouraging to see people who live nearby! I would like (need) to lose 40 lbs. I've been sedentary and inactive for the past few years, and my main goal is to become more physically active as part of my daily routine so that I will feel better and lose the weight as a byproduct of a healthier lifestyle. I tried WW with some success, but I found that I tended to obsess too much over food, and those weekly weigh-ins were depressing and anxiety-inducing. So I became discouraged and quit and eventually regained what I'd lost. WW is a good program, but it just isn't for me. I really do believe now that, for me, focusing on physical activity is the way to go. Healthy foods are also part of the equation. You can't live on cookies, obviously (why can't my sweet tooth learn that!?). So good luck to everybody, I'm looking forward to seeing you here. :-)

Hello there! My name is Amy and I live in M'ville--I jointed SP last spring but have totally neglected it except to read articles. I have lost 55 of the 100 lbs that I'm trying to lose. Certainly isn't easy, but it can be done! Best of luck to you---and DON'T give up!!!!!!

Hi Amy!
Just found your post, and I just joined the Chickahominy YMCA today! Let me know if you need a work out buddy! I just turned 44 on Dec. 28, and have about 80 pounds left to lose. Hope things are going great for you!!

My name is Amy and I live in Highland Springs. I had been very thin until and hit 40 and had a baby. Now I struggle to lose the weight. I have a membership w/the Chickahominy YMCA but can't seem to find the time to get there. I would love a buddy to help with the motivation.

Hi everyone,
I need to lose over 130 pounds. I know support is very important to following through with our goals. I'd love to have you come along with me on this journey as we learn from each other. I am married and have a grown son.

I will share more about myself as we go along.
